Halloween party in full swing at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery

Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) in Honiton celebrated the national Museums at Night festival with a spooktacular Halloween party

The event attracted a staggering 600 visitors who enjoyed a fun-packed evening including art activities as well as food and music which coordinated with the gallery’s community exhibition People’s Paolozzi.

Families cut out and created silhouette shadow puppets and made their own bat boxes. Kids loved getting up close to stroke geckos, lizards, a skunk and even a 10 foot python from Exeter Exotics. There was also some scary face painting and children enjoyed exploring the garden for spooky treats.

One of the visitors, who came with his family said: “It was a brilliant family evening with a great atmosphere, good food and wonderful activities!”

Angela Blackwell, THG Curator commented

We were overwhelmed by how popular this event turned out to be. It really was a fantastic night. We are already looking forward to our Museums at Night party next May!
